I can't help but feel a little bad for Kyle Williams.

Recommended Posts

I feel for Kyle, but he left on his own terms. Unlike Eric Woods, who had to leave the game because of his health. 

 

On the same note. How much fun would be if Terrance McGee and Freddie Jackson were also part of this. I know Terrance is a bit of a stretch because he played so long ago, but no less deserving IMO. 

 

Even though there is a lot to be proud of, up to this point. There is still so much work left to be done. Lets keep it rolling. 

 

GO BILLS!!!

Meatball helped break that damn curse, running one in for a touchdown no less.
 

He’s a Bills legend for sure. He doesn’t need this season for that.

 Maybe he was the problem.

Yeah man... he was solely the problem. I agree.

wish I could feel bad for a millionaire who played the game he loved to play.

Shaping up to be much like Don Mattingly's career with the Yankees.  Played all those years with no playoffs, then got to make a brief playoff appearance before retiring and then the team had great success after he left.

Yeah, Bills fans convinced him to sign here, and that was it for his career basically.

Man if this team really turns into something long term, Kyle is going to be well-remembered as a career Bill who helped set the tone for McD and the whole deal that playoff-drought breaking season.

 

Kyle's initials are scratched in the concrete of the foundation.

Very well said indeed !

Kyle is still in touch with the team.  I'm sure they'll include him appropriately as the team has success.   He was an important foundation for what McBeane are building, and they won't forget.

Frankly, I don't feel one bit sorry for Kyle.

 

Sincerely,

Archie Manning

Out of all of his year here, we failed to win consistently and aside from the one play off appearance he didn't see much of it, period. 

 

The year after he leaves, we have this fantastic season and the best start in 20 years. I wish he would have been able to be apart of something like this. 

 

I'm sure he's happy for the organization but I can't help but wonder if he's a little bitter that in his 13 years here, we couldn't put this type of team on the field with him. 

Yup, as a Yankees fan I’m reminded of Don Mattingly- same situation

Oh hell it is worse than that. He just missed playoff runs with the Eagles and 49ers too.  Starcrossed for sure

Zero chance that he's bitter.  He made the decision to retire.

I feel a little bit of that, but I think with his ongoing connection to the team including acting as a guest coach in training camp, he feels like he's part of the success the team is enjoying.

He made a ton of money, will never have to buy a meal again in Buffalo and will someday be on the wall of fame.  Don't feel badly for him one bit.

Sorry but I don’t and I doubt Kyle wants us to feel sorry for him. KW has a great career, made a bucketful of cash and has his health. As fans we should be grateful for such a high character guy amongst us but never should we feel sorry for someone who walks away with financial security and good health.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he and McDermott have each other on speed dial should we need some depth/injury coverage in the DL for the postseason. He still looks like he’s ready to play tomorrow if the call came in.

 

if we needed him desperately, he answers that call 100% of the time.

 

Kyle has lost a lot of weight and I doubt he would be able to successfully play in current shape although for life he is probably in better shape.

Maybe they could ask him to emulate Lamar Jackson in practice :D
